What kinds of compensation can I get after being injured in a car accident in Arizona?
In most cases, you may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. A diligent lawyer can help ensure that you do not miss out on any compensation available to you.
Is Arizona a no-fault or at-fault state when it comes to compensation for car accidents?
Whichever driver was at fault will need to pay for others’ injuries and losses. However, Arizona also has comparative fault laws regarding motor vehicle accidents. Specifically, the law stipulates that “the full damages shall be reduced in proportion to the relative degree of the claimant’s fault.” Therefore, if you were injured, you can bring a claim even if you were partially at fault.
Can I get compensation from an insurance company without an attorney’s assistance?
You can try this, but many people in your situation soon discover that insurance companies often put up obstacles and make it hard for people to get the benefits they deserve. An attorney on your side can help you overcome such challenges.
